Love pork chops but any pork dish will be appreciated. Farm to table is a plus.

      what about prime meat?
      or rye?
      I have been to both places and thought they are outstanding.

          Although not a pork chop I'd also like to nominate the Maialino al forno at Maialiano which may be the best pork dish I have ever consumed. Crispy skin, fatty juicy delicious meat, and the juices mixing with the roasted poatoes. You can't beat that one.

                Rouge Tomate doesn't seem to get much love on this board, but i had a pork dish for lunch there earlier this month and thought it was excellent.

                  People seem to be jumping on the anti-Shopsins bandwagon of late, but they used to make this deep-fried ball of seasoned bbq pork. I don't know if they still make it, but it was incredible.

                    Second Babbo - best pork chop I ever had. Kafana is fun, though I didn't try their pork chop.

                          I also enjoyed Kafana's pork chop in the east village (as part of a Serbian mixed grill). Don't overlook Casa, the Brazilian place on Barrow in the WV. Though I might not be the expert the name suggests, I can vouch that neither of these were dried out or overcooked.

                            I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Diner yet, in Williamsburg.

                            I've had the pork chop there several times recently, and it's absolutely stellar. Everything is local/sustainable, and the menu always changes.

                                True, but what about everyone commenting about Vinegar Hill? Besides, Diner could potentially be closer to the OG poster than some of the other places!

                                This is a little "out there" but I had a really great pork chop, and much more porky grilled goodness, at Kafana (Serbian place on Ave C).

                                  I had the best pork chop I've ever had at Five Points. I don't think they have it on the menu all the time, but when they do, it's definitely worth getting.

                                            Babbo's pork chop is, by far, the best I ever had. A phenomenal dish. So good I asked the server to pack the bone to take home with me.

                                              I highly second Two Toms both for the price, size and taste of their pork chops. Beware that this is not a high end establishment but more of a family run, relaxedtype of place. It's great.

                                              Another place with good chops but more expensive is Little Owl. in a nicer, smaller setting.

                                              And of course the Bo Ssam at Momofuku is one amazinf hunk of pork butt.

                                                I think the pork chop at Two Toms is like a perfect example of some local foodie legend that simply doesn't withstand examination. When I finally had one last year after living in Brooklyn for almost 30 years, I was shocked. I couldn't believe it. It was totally devoid of flavor -- and something strange must have done to get it to be that moist when it was completely overcooked.

                                                This is the kind of place that's fun to go to because it makes you feel like you're a local in the know, rather than some lemming going to some cool place. But for food, it's better to go to real restaurants. (I think the pork chop at Vinegar Hill House is exceptional.)

                                                    The chops at VHH were unlike anything called a "pork chop," that I've ever eaten. Simply amazing.
